The ArtŽsien was built in 1765 as part of a series of 12 ships of the line built to compensate losses endured by the French Royal Navy during the Seven Years’ War.

A fine 1/28th scale model of the ship was used to instruct Louis XVI in naval studies and is now on display at the MusŽe de la Marine.
